Samantha Bee caught everyone up on the past week of Donald Trump, highlighting how Trump went from validation for doing the bare minimum to ruining his own momentum.

After seeing the political pundits shower praise on Trump for his joint speech to Congress last week, which Bee compared to the reaction of a toddler using the toilet correctly, she delved into the wiretapping claims Trump made over the weekend, after he heard about them from far-right media.

“Sadly, ‘presidential’ Trump didn’t have long to enjoy his victory over his own tongue,” Bee said. “That’s new. A white guy shoots himself in the dick, tries to pin it on a black guy. When has that ever happened? To be fair, there’s a good chance Trump fell asleep watching news, rolled over on the remote and woke up during The Wire. Mr. President, that’s not Barack Obama.”

He didn’t produce any evidence for his claims—claims that now have real-life repercussions because the president said them publicly. But over the weekend, his demeanor apparently sunk so low that his advisers tried to cheer him up with the new travel ban, something Bee didn’t find comforting at all.

Prior to Full Frontal airing, Bee highlighted yesterday’s Day Without a Women on social media, both in how little it would affect the Trump administration and what her show would look like if no women showed up to work on her show.
